Creating Linear Illusions with Ceiling Beams

In the age of rapid innovation, the industry has come up with several techniques to style ceilings. Sometimes left as a blank overhead canvas of one colour, ceilings can create an illusion of height and space when designed properly. One method of achieving this illusion of dimension is by installing ceiling beams.

Playing with Height, Space and Natural Light

Linear architectural elements, such as ceiling beams, create a perspective that lends an illusion of space and distance. As a result, they add dimension to flat surfaces like ceilings. The lines created by beams can also produce interesting shadows and allow light to pass through a hidden source beyond the ceiling line.

In some applications, ceiling beams can “divide” very high ceilings into multiple layers. Beams bring the scope down for a cosier effect, while achieving a three-dimensional style that allows for more visually interesting ceilings.

Versatile Design Aspects of Ceiling Beams

When it comes to interior design, ceiling beams are versatile and work harmoniously with classic and rustic styles and several other themes that incorporate natural materials like wood and metal. As additions to the blank canvas of ceilings, they can be installed in almost any area of a commercial establishment.
Beams can also be painted in light or dark shades, depending on the warmth and coolness of the interior. They are available in a variety of materials, such as steel, polyurethane foam and natural wood.
